Loving where you are

Rate this Entry
So I should have been home by now. A little change in travel plans. I had to stay longer for work and am not certain right now how long. I am hoping I will be home by the middle of the week and if not at least by Fri as I have a doctor appointment about doing my next round. I have to say I was ready to be home a week ago. This trip has been relatively stressful and I have gotten off plan a few times. Not that far off but i did gain a considerable amount. i have gotten a good portion of it off but it will take time to get the rest off as I am not willing to do a correction day every day. it scares me how quickly the weight piles on for me especially if I have alcohol and more than a little carbs. And when I am stressed I want wine. Or is it that I want to wine!! You know my rounds went pretty smoothly. I don't have a family near and have never been tempted or hungry as others have on this plan. This has been my longest break in between rounds and I am getting to observe my eating patterns with stress, hormones, boredom and emotionalism this time. I am getting ready to do my 5th round and consider myself lucky that I have not experienced any of this till now. I am trying not to judge it all that much as I just don't want to beat myself up anymore. It is what it is and I have to pick myself up and get back in the game. In a way it is good this has happened as I get to learn my triggers and how to deal with them better and how to get back on that horse. Hopefully I can get in that saddle quicker each time. This is a lifetime journey and I wouldn't be here if I didn't have anything to learn from it. I saw a lot of people on this trip that have not seen me in awhile. Quite a few of them say I look 10 years younger. I think they are right. when I look at before pictures I am shocked that I looked like that. I like where I am at right now. Where I am at would be big for most people but I am pretty comfortable. I have a little more ways to go but I am feeling good about where I am too. I have a quote on my bathroom mirror that says " I love myself just as I am and still I want to grow" (or something like that) I think that sums it up. Hope you are enjoying your journey!

    Congratulations for all your hard work. Don't you ever forget to look back and see how much you have overcome. One of the hardest things I have done is acepting the fact that my weight is something that I will always have to watch and control. The journey is long but is so much fun when you are healthy and in good shape... keep on going.
